In this study migration is examined as a component of population change. Decisions involved in migration are discussed. Source of migration data are suggested. Generalized in-migration and out-migration fields are described. Migration patterns before 1975 and recent migration patterns are examined and decisions underlying the latter are analyzed. Case studies of Vermont, New Hampshire, Maine, and Arkansas are used to illustrate migration concepts accounting for recent population changes. Impacts of recent migration patterns are discussed. An extensive bibliography and suggestions for utilizing this document in classrooms are also included. (Author/MC)
